A new Animal Reception Centre at Bristol International is set to open next month (1st July), enabling dog and cat owners across the South West to fly their pets in and out of the region's airport.
Animals with a Pet Passport are allowed to enter the UK without the statutory six months quarantine. However, facilities are required at the airport to enable checks to be carried out on pets before and after flights. Bristol International will become only the fourth airport in the UK with such facilities (following Heathrow, Gatwick and Manchester), reducing road journeys for local dog and cat owners looking to transport their animals overseas.
Any dog or cat returning to the U.K. who has a full Pet Passport and is travelling
a) on a flight destined for Bristol
b) on a flight approved to carry livestock
is now able to take advantage of the Animal Reception Centre facilities to enter the U.K.
It will also be possible for dogs and cats to depart the U.K. to destinations available from Bristol International Airport through the Animal Reception Centre.
The Animal Reception Centre at Bristol International will be operated by Overhill Kennels. Established for 30 years, the Bristol-based business specializes in boarding and exports.
Further information on the Animal Reception Centre is available by calling 01275 832489 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
